“Great veggie options and fab selection of beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2017

Try the cheese steak, it is so good! The potato pancakes are also excellent. For the non veggies, well you are spoilt, go visit and treat yourself. Pair it off with a nice beer. They have a vast selection and the staff are always helpful with any questions you might have, providing tasters etc. Love this place :)

“Avoid like the plague”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2017

I stopped by early to go into the off license and was cursed at by one of the staff for no apparent reason. Never experienced anything like this before in my life. Rudest thing Ive ever seen, and I live in Dublin. Stay away from this place.

Hi there, sound like some kind of misunderstanding more than anything else. My staff does get it own share of abuse in the shop on the occasions. Im always here on Mondays, just ask for Igor if you are around and We will sort this out.

“Quick stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2017 via mobile

We stopped here for a quick drink before the Guinness storehouse.

Very quick pleasant service. The Irish coffees were the strongest of all we tried!

Food was cooking and smelt excellent although we didn't try any due to time limits.

“Nice friendly little bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2016

Just happened upon this place one evening and decided to have dinner there, great choice. It's a Slovak/Checzh place with great food and beer from those countries. had the shnitzel and it was awesome. Service was great. Would love to go back.

“Party in Pifko”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2016

I have been to Pifko many times since it opened in Dublin and have never been disappointed with anything they offer including brunch, lunch, dinner, and especially the excellent selection of of Czech/Slovak beers and spirits. I retired recently and decided to have my retirement party there on a Friday evening. There were 40+ people at the party over the course of the evening and we were ideally accommodated within the main bar/restaurant area with seating for everyone. I had been in contact with Igor Menšik, the manager, by phone and email no more than a week and a half before the party, and I was able to organise everything with him very efficiently in the run-up. He recommended that I order eight Czech platters for the group comprising different pork dishes with typical accompaniments of pickles, gherkins, sauerkraut, traditional breads, horseradish and mustard. These turned out to be a real meat feast and everyone was thoroughly satisfied with the quality and tastes. On the evening itself, Igor wasn't there but Michael behind the bar organised everything with exemplary efficiency.

This was an important event for me, my family, friends and former colleagues and Pifko didn't let me down in any respect in having a really excellent bash.
